The condition of Niv Nehemiah — the 42-year-old Israeli man who was critically wounded by a Palestinian terrorist in a stabbing attack at a Yavne supermarket on Wednesday — has stabilized, but his life remains in danger.

Nehemiah is hospitalized at the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.

On Friday morning, Nehemiah’s family thanked the hospital staff and asked the public for continued prayers.

The terrorist — a 19-year-old Palestinian man from a village near Hebron who had entered Israel illegally — was arrested by police near the scene of the attack.

Watch a video of the attack below (via the Times of Israel):
